The city's oldest pub offering ales from its only brewery

At a glance

Set amid glorious Georgian architecture and first licensed in 1760, the impressive Star Inn is one of Bath’s oldest pubs and is of outstanding historical interest, with a rare and totally unspoiled interior. Original features in the four drinking areas include 19th-century Gaskell and Chambers bar fittings, a barrel lift from the cellar, and even complimentary pinches of snuff found in tins in the smaller bar. Long famous for its pints of Bass served from the jug, these days Abbey Ales from Bath’s only brewery are also popular. Fresh filled rolls are available and free cheese and biscuits are available on a Thursday evening.
